This plot is for grouping scattered points into hexagonal boxes on a chart. This is useful when l plotting many datapoints and your interested in finding a common pattern among all the x and y points.
Want to see exactly how I built this visual? Check out my Hexagonal Bin Tutorial on PowerBI.Tips which explains how to create this visual step by step. Tutorial includes detailed explainations about the R script. Enjoy!
Prerequisites (The sample .pbix files won't work without installing the following)
1. Install R Engine
Power BI does not include the R engine. Therefore, a seperate installation is required to install R on your local computer. You can download R from the Revolution Open download page, and through the CRAN Repository.
2. Install the R packages
Once R engine has been installed you can dowload the package from the Revolution Open Package Downloads Page.
Required R Packages
MRO 3.3.1, CRAN 3.3.1
